Fitzgerald: The “Islam Is Peace” campaign
Now let’s all imagine that we are Muslims, Believers living in the West. Muslims are not “monolithic,” we are told. No. You may come from Pakistan and I from Somalia, and someone is here from Algeria, and someone else from Yemen, and so on. But we all share the same faith, a faith that is a religion, a politics, an economics, a system of artistic censorship, a guide to personal hygiene, a manual of etiquette, a guide to Dealing With Non-Muslims, a clothing manual, a guide to what are the permissible limits of thought and especially of thought about Islam and Muhammad, and so on. It’s a Total System. It is unrecognized as such by most Infidels because what they know of as religion, what they think of as religion, is not a Total System.
New Jihad Watch: The Orwellian “Islam is Peace” campaign
Islamic groups in the UK have launched the slick “Islam is Peace” public relations campaign, which supporters say is aimed at showing that Muslims are ordinary British citizens. But as Robert Spencer reports, its actual aims and rhetoric line up well with many jihadist goals.
“The Islamist Trojan Horse is already in place,” by Youssef M. Ibrahim in the New York Sun
“We’re fighting them there, so we don’t have to fight them here” has become a hymn for the American right and an abominable lie to the left. But drowned out by all the noise is the fact that “they” are here already, having landed a long time ago and gotten very busy indeed constructing the American wing of jihad.
Have you watched the Arabic Channel, also known as TAC, which serves the New York region? Probably not, as most New Yorkers neither understand nor speak Arabic. But if you are among the estimated 1 million viewers â€” legal and illegal, new and old Arabic-speaking immigrants to the tri-state area â€” who tune in daily to Channel 507 on Time Warner Cable, this is what you can get:
â€¢ A daily dose of Islamic jurisprudence from an Egyptian sheik, Amr Khaled, who comes direct from Cairo as TAC’s prime advocate of “peaceful jihad,” on how the duty of every Arab-American is to become first, second, and only a member of the Muslim Ummah.
â€¢ A nightly helping of Syria’s CNN-style digest of the world, sent fresh from a Damascus studio where the Iraq war is nothing but an American butchery of Arabs, and the Zionist regime in Jerusalem is just biding its time until it gets what it deserves.
A Somali mosque in Toronto is completely open about their agenda of Islamic supremacism, contemptuously posting an article telling Muslims to stay completely away from the infidels’ holidays.
Also forbidden: watching sports or soap operas, walking dogs, family photos, wedding bands, Western hats, and mingling and shaking hands with the opposite sex.
* Bombing the infidels on their holidays is allowed, because worshipping their false gods is offensive to Allah…
Supremacism, not assimilation. “How can we bring ourselves to congratulate or wish people well for their disobedience to Allah?”
“The Khalid Bin Al-Walid Mosque says to “avoid participating” in dinners, parties or greetings on Thanksgiving because it is a kuffaar, or non-Muslim, celebration.
A two-part article on the mosque Web site says Muslims should also “stay completely away” from “Halloween trick-and treat nonsense,” Christmas, New Year’s, anniversaries, birthdays and Earth Day.
“How can we bring ourselves to congratulate or wish people well for their disobedience to Allah? Thus expressions such as: Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Birthday, Happy New Year, etc, are completely out,” it says.

Spain: Girl, 7, who wears veil, allowed back to school
Seven-year-old girls are not required to wear the veil in any case. In other words, some adults are using this girl to make a political point. And that political point is that Muslims will not conform to the mores of Spanish society.
